  • Foundation Degrees are also particularly suitable if you want to qualify while working.
  • UCAS introduced a new tariff for courses from September 2017. This means the points you will be asked for are different to previous years but the grades you receive have not changed.
  • As a guideline, a typical offer would require you to obtain a UCAS tariff score of between 32-48 points, based on your level 3 studies.
  • Many students studying for foundation degrees come to us through work-based routes so you can apply for a foundation degree even if you don't have traditional academic qualifications.

Course Information

This course responds to a major concern of any society: criminal behaviour. It looks at how resources are employed in detecting, preventing and understanding criminal behaviour and in prosecuting criminals and detaining them. It also investigates the psychology and motivations at work behind criminal behaviour.

The curriculum of this course highlights both general psychology as well as aspects of psychology that are relevant to understanding an individual's development from childhood through to adolescence and maturity. You will also explore the theory supporting and predicting behaviour in groups. Alongside your enhanced subject knowledge, you will acquire improved study skills, teamwork skills and time management. There will be a Personal Development Planning component to this group, during which you will reflect on your own performance and learning.

This Foundation Degree allows participants to maintain employment while they study. Following the Foundation Degree, you will be able to progress directly onto the BA Hons Psychological Studies programme, or seek professional employment in relevant fields such as police and community work.
